*All parents of children in classes K-8 will meet in the church on the first Wednesday class meeting of the month with Father Chris Hallada, our new pastor.
Our focus this year will be Family Catechesis. We will aim to equip families with the tools they need to teach and form the faith of their children and own the role of primary teachers and spiritual leaders of their homes. These once a month parent class meetings will be recorded, streamed live, and posted to our You Tube channel, in order to be available to families who are doing Virtual only classes, or in the event of another lockdown, be adaptive to unforeseen situations, so we can still continue faith formation*
